Dantebad, Bad, Oh So Bad.

Munich locals love the new refurbished Dantebad swimming pool in Nymphenberg/Gern, possibly too much. As the temperature stretched over 90 degrees, it felt like all of Munich was there. And for good reason, after a 5 million euro refit that includes a multi-level toddler’s pool (pictured), a large waterslide in the paddling pool, a true swimming (laps) pool, and even a nudist area (which seems like the only rule that orderly Germans don’t mind breaking). I’ve said before that I believe Munich does swimming pools better than just about any city I’ve ever been to. You’re unfortunately going to have to share them though.

It does look crowded. The idea of a nudist area makes me laugh. I had been prepared for widespread nudity. But then, I remember the only nudists I used to see in Munich were generally people I really didn't want to see nude anyway, so it is nice they are set apart!
